Ezra Miller On Rick's Departure, The Script Of 'The Flash,' His Research, And More

Speaking to Collider, while promoting Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Ezra Miller talked about a few things regarding The Flash solo film, his research, Geoff Johns, and the script.

“These processes are complicated, and I think it can—from afar—appear to be, as you say, something interpersonal or dramatic,” Ezra speaking on the departure of Rick Famuyiwa. “That is rarely the case. These are groups of people taking the development of projects extremely seriously, and the teams are changing all the time. There’s often a lot of flux in who the team of the production of a film is before that production starts, and in this case, you hear about it, because it’s a critical figure—the directors that have been coming on and leaving. For me, it’s sort of a tragic relay race, and we’ve had a couple really incredible people carry this baton, and their marks are left on that baton, and the work that they’ve given to the project will certainly be represented in whatever the final product comes to be.”


“I mean I’ve been investigating and composing the character since the moment I started considering doing the screen test,” Ezra said of his research for playing the character of Barry Allen/ The Flash. “Fortunately, a lot of that research is extremely fun and involves reading Flash Comics and other comics from the world of DC, The Brave and the Bold, and I’m really interested in the early history and some of my favorite stuff is Silver Age. Even the Golden Age and the Jay Garrick stuff, the original Flash. It’s just so fascinating, so endlessly compelling. It’s such an incredible set-up for exploration, all these fascinating concepts in physics, in mysticism, in fantasy… he can go anywhere. He’s that figure of the DC pantheon who transcends the realms, sort of like Hermes or Mercury before him in the respective Greek and Roman mythologies that the character’s (creator) Gardner Fox clearly very much based (him on).”

“Yes, [Geoff Johns]’s a good guy to have around,” Miller concurred on having Johns as one of the heads of DC Films. “He keeps us full of information and he keeps us from making ignorant mistakes that would upset the fans across the world because you pretty much can’t get someone with a deeper knowledge of this universe than Geoff Johns.”

“I’ve had glimpses of various points in the development of it," Miller talking about the script of the solo film. “And I’m extremely excited.
